Rotations: Trompo-popular South American game played in Venezuela. Number of players: 2 or more Equipment: spinning top per player Time: 5 or more minutes Aim: to knock over the other player’s tops A level, flat area is needed for this game. To begin the game, each player spins their top and tries to knock over their opponent’s tops. The winner is the player whose top is spinning at the end.
Shamrock Stomp-this is an Irish variation of musical chairs The leader tapes large laminated green shamrocks at random spots on the floor, one less than the number of children. Kids walk around the room/area as a leader plays music; once the music stops, the kids must rush to a shamrock. The child left without a shamrock exits the game. The leader removes one shamrock after each elimination, with the last child declared the winner.
Oonch Neech or “Up and Down” is a traditional game of tag played in Pakistan. There is no home base, but the kids can climb up on something to be safe i.e. chair, limb, porch, etc. (one variation is to make a home base of a limb that the children must touch) Mancala-this is a mental game of skill played by kids in Malawi There are dips or holes scooped out of the ground (or buy the game board at Wal-mart). Four rows of holes with two at the end for each player. Stones are used as
counters or pieces. Move the pieces along the board, the first person to capture more than ½ of 48 pieces wins.
